Quite good.

Listening to Wheels of Fire now and wonder how any young music fan today could give them a pass. And it isn't because I'm old. It is truly good rock music.

It's great. Innovative, melodic, improvisational. They should've made more albums. The Blind Faith LP is better than Goodbye too.

Studio recordings excellent. Too much live nonesense

"Badge" was OK. The first album would be the only one I'd consider owning; and that, in retrospect, is pretty standard British blooze of the era.

The studio disc is great - you get bells, gongs, strings. Nice sounds, not suffocated by the blues.

I'm off to a Governors' meeting. I'll add a clue tonight if we make no progress

I wish they had stayed together and finished the Goodbye album properly -- and Baker had not wasted Winwood's time.
